Felton Road Central Otago Pinot Noir 2003 Wine Review (NW)

Tasting notes:

Bright strawberry and fresh herbs mixed with a hint of chocolate on the nose
Rich core of flavors; earthy and herbal
Nice lingering finish of wild berries, sour cherry, and pepper

Good friends provided this special wine on Thanksgiving. We had several wines open for the meal, but this may have been the best pairing. It has a delicate balance between fruit and herbs, very nice texture, and a classy presence.

The wine was a real crowd pleaser and, at about $45, a real treat. You won't find it everywhere as it's one of the more sought-after, small production Pinots from New Zealand. Raise a glass!
